It looks like File Front isn't going to be shutting down after all as the original founders of the site have purchased
the site back from Ziff Davis and are planning on keeping the site up and going. It looks like this isn't an April Fools joke (but I've been fooled before
) and I'm hoping they can keep the site up and running as it's a fairly solid resource and repository of PC gaming history.
